For the first time since the start of their professional career, the brothers Pierre and Paul Boudehent will no longer wear the same jersey next season. Pierre, the eldest of the two brothers, who will celebrate his 25th birthday in a few weeks, will indeed join the Stade Français. He announced it this Tuesday in an interview with Rugby Rama. “Yes, I confirm that I will be fine in Paris next season. The reasons for my choice? I’ve been in La Rochelle for a long time, I know everything here, and I wanted to see new horizons. I was also seduced by the arrival of the Labit-Ghezal duo in Paris, the fact that the club is on the rise and that it has raised its standards considerably. In this context, I still hope to raise my level,” says the center (or winger).
